I've been climbing on the Cyborgs for a few years now and am totally satisfied with them. They get excellent purchase on steep ice without displacing to much ice. No balling up under foot. Once they are adjusted correctly they are secure as if you screwed them to your boots.

Beautifull design, clever use of stainless steel, binding works fine (perfect for La Sportiva Nepal Evo). Unfortunately I'm not going to be able to use the forged front teeth this winter for ice climbing... The stainless steel teeth are already completely worn out after just one season of alpine mountaineering. By comparison, my previous crampons lasted 4 or 5 seasons with about the same number of mixed routes every year. I couldn't resist measuring the hardness of the remains of my old crampons, so I took both of my old crampons to a friends who runs a small fabrication shop and could measure the surface harness. HV30 hardness is just shy of 400 for the BD Cyborg, and shy of 500 for the now 5 or 6-year old competitor crampon. So yes, the old crampons are very rusty, but it's obvious to me that the extra 20% surface hardness makes a big difference on wear. I didn't do much front pointing this summer, so the front point are still OK, but the rest of the crampon has unfortunately reached its end of life after a 3-month season. It's too bad that the soft-ish stainless steel lets down such a good looking and functionnal crampon. It also means that the Cyborg won't rank very high in term of eco footprint (4 or 5 times as many crampons are needed for the same job).

Rust

By Cody

from Mechanicsburg, PA, USA

Comments about Black Diamond Cyborg Pro Crampon:

I have only used these crampons for three climbing trips. After every trip my cyborgs have been slowly accumulating more and more rust after each trip. Also the adjustment to a mono point is not as easy as it sounds.

Solid and Confidence Inspiring

By Justin

from Anchorage, AK, USA

Comments about Black Diamond Cyborg Pro Crampon:

I've been using these crampons for several months now climbing mostly WI3 in Alaska. They've been solid and easy to place with even light kicks giving a solid stick. They are difficult to transition them to mono-points. You have to cut a slot in the ABS, use different spacers and screws in order to make them mono or dual.

Very nice crampon mono or dual point

By Todd

from Rangely, CO 81648, USA

Comments about Black Diamond Cyborg Pro Crampon:

It takes about ten minutes for me to switch out the dual for mono points with warm hands after an initial struggle to make the anti-balling plate mods for both (loss of star). I really like the ability to use both styles without dropping another wad of cash for a single purpose crampon. They are solid and stable, bite into ice easily, take my futile attempts at mixed climbs in stride, and stand up to years of abuse. I've had my cyborgs for 6 years and am still waiting to need to replace the front points! The pro stays put on my very narrow Asolo boots- I have never had any sideways play, even though my boots leave about 3/8" on each side up front.

Gets it done...

By Mathew

from Anchorage, AK

Comments about Black Diamond Cyborg Pro Crampon:

...on ice, mixed, alpine, dry-tooling. Great functionality, especially with the mono and dual options. Parts are durable PLUS replaceable. Solid crampon.

Confidence inspiring.

By Andy

from Adirondacks, NY

Comments about Black Diamond Cyborg Pro Crampon:

The Cyborg Crampon is the ultimate vertical climbing crampon. Excellent rigidity, solid connection to boot, and the ability to convert to a mono-point make this crampon worth the bucks. Want an all around crampon that works great for the pros or entry level climber? Go for the Cyborg. *All-in-all, excellent placements with amazing secure feel.
